Illustrated Standard
The Bite

Undershot Bite (Incorrect)
In this bite the lower front incisors project beyond the upper front incisors. Also, note that the alignment of all of the teeth may be affected. In counting the teeth in this diagram you might feel that one tooth is missing in the lower jaw - however in the specimen used as model for this drawing all teeth were present, but the teeth are so out of line that the first molar is hidden from view by the upper canine tooth.

This type bite is most often found in connection with a "Roman" Head or a "Roman" nose.
